Introduction to the Book

SuperCommunicator [Explaining the complicated so anyone can understand] is a practical resource to communicating effectively in this millennium. It guides us in recognizing how changing digital technology as a communication medium can be used and provides practical insights to bring meaning to your audience as you prepare your narrative for sharing.

Overview of Book’s Structure

This book utilizes 9 sections called Parts which contains associated chapters. The first 5 parts outline the basics of why and how to effectively understand the audience you intend to communicate with.

If you only had limited time to read this work, I believe the introduction to Part 5 is the heart and soul of this book. Parts 6-9 gives much deeper insight to what’s required to relate to your audience and reinforces the importance and individual benefit of clear and concise communication while being yourself.

Highlights: What’s New in this Book?

The author provides many examples, illustrations, and easily understandable methods that can be used to communicate different types of subject matter with diverse audiences on multiple levels. The layout is easy to navigate and locate topics that are of interest to the reader.
